We’re now entering the October candy vortex, where my kids wake up asking for chocolate and sugar seems to seep through the doorjambs and under the windows.
Of course, we’ll indulge in a few treats. But first, the three of us enjoyed the afternoon making Pumpkin Apple Mini-Muffins, which we’ll bring to Halloween parties this week. The muffins are made from the Pumpkin Apple Bread recipe in our newest newsletter, out Nov. 1. Subscribe (it’s free!) and you’ll get the recipe. We were lucky to have gorgeous pie pumpkins to roast and a batch of my neighbor’s fresh applesauce for the batter. There’s no avoiding the candy. But these mini-muffins are even sweeter to me.
